There are serious discussions regarding so-called “preventative” internment camps for those classed as “extremists” by the French state.

Days earlier prime minister Manuel Valls sought legal advice on setting up “preventative” internment camps for those classed as extremists.

The number of people in this category doubled to 20,000—the majority of them Muslims—between August and November.

Chair Sihame Assbague called for putting slips of paper saying “no votes without justice” in ballot boxes instead of voting papers.

Campaigner Marwan Muhammad criticised much of the left, “who couldn’t be here because they found it more important to justify themselves to racists.”

Salma Yaqoob, a leading figure from the anti-war movement in Britain, pointed to what could be gained from cooperation between Muslims and the left.

Hanane Karimi is a campaigner in eastern France where the FN led the first round.

She told Socialist Worker, “A victory for the FN would be a catastrophe for everyone.

“But its ideas have been allowed to become so widespread that it becomes a possibility.

“Politics have lurched to the far right. The Socialist Party has been the best possible advert for the FN.

“In France there is no political alternative—and perhaps we need to build one.”

    Here is the new article by Seymour Hersh Military to Military
    on US intelligence sharing in the Syrian war
    “The assessment was bleak: there was no viable ‘moderate’ opposition to Assad, and the US was arming extremists.”

    Muslims belong to a variety of spectrums but as long as they fulfil the 5 pillars of Islam and stay from the major sins, they are Muslims. Cutting birthday cake or wishing someone Merry Christmas doesn’t make anyone a non-Muslim.

    “but it is forbidden to critisize the ruler in public”

    It is ? Where is this written ?

    How is that going to work in Palestine or any number of other countries ?
    Bibi must be worried

    Sir David

  • The greenmantle

    I am amused at your attempts to suggest zionist = leftist .
    I note that a number of Palestinians are christian . A fact often forgotten by the right in the USA and the Zionists .

    Sir David

    “don’t see any point in fighting with stones and knifes against the zionist army.”
    Maybe they dont have anything else . Maybe they should ask the USA govt for some free F16s 😉

    Poppycock!. Please cite a reference where ‘Lots of sufis do jot believe in sharia law’?

  • Sam Seed

    I do follow the Sufi way and I am a Sunni. So is Sheikh Hamza Yusuf.

  • Sam Seed

    No they do not worship the dead, they pay respect. I don’t believe you are a Muslim.

  • Sam Seed

    Says you.

  • The greenmantle

    I think you misunderstand me . This is the internet . Home to truth and lies all wearing the same coat .
    I think just when muslims in the west and east should working together because politically and practically they are weak in the face of descrimination , political marginisation and frankly evil . Along come folks in false colours trying to say- dont talk to those folks they are not really muslims you have nothing in common with them . Do you not all have the same 5 pillars ? I have read the Quran does it not say things about the weakness of the ummah ? and hypocrites ? and those who say others are not muslims ? Do they claim to read minds ? As a Brit I know all about devide and rule .
    As for socialism some of the ideas on the “left ” offer hope to religious minorities while the 1% and in this I include most definitly the Saudi Royal family offer only slavery . As for the Zionists they are simply wrong on every level .

  • Abu Aischa Al-Salafi

    Lots of sufis do not believe in sharia law for example, there is so many.

  • Abu Aischa Al-Salafi

    Even those who do not commit shirk are involved in bid’ah. The sufis brought down the ummah and brought the destruction of the ottoman empire!

  • Jekyll

    So? I visit all sorts of sites…
    Btw el cid & the other troll are back up there…

  • Abu Aischa Al-Salafi
  • Abu Aischa Al-Salafi

    There are some practices, the goofy sufis are known for which cannot be practiced by true muslims. Especially like shirk, like the sufis do when they call the prophet – peace be upon him – or calling the dead.

  • Jekyll

    Probably…
